The New SFP+ Module Extends the Life of Any Switch Hardware Without Having to Change Existing Infrastructure

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - Nov 2, 2015) - dataMate, a business unit of Methode Electronics, Inc. (NYSE: MEI), a global developer of custom engineered and application specific products and solutions, today announced the release of the first 10G copper small form pluggable (SFP+) transceiver module.
